Thomas Rider
« on: Friday 06 April 18 21:11 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the grave of this fellow, he is a distant uncle :-

Thomas Rider - Family name usually is spelt Ryder. He was married to Mary King.

Born in Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire in 1790, parents William and Mary. Multiple siblings, most notable is John Ryder, they rode at waterloo together in the kings dragoons. They were hero's.

Thomas Died in Mid January 1875 at Nottingham. It was reported in the Leicester Chronicle on 23rd Jan. His name was spelt Ryder in this article.

I can't help but feel there should be a grave with a headstone. I wonder if anyone could help?

Leicestershire: Inglesant. Ryder. Rider. Walford. Massey. Daykin/Daikin. Newbold/Newball. Hammonds.
Great Yarmouth: Gage/Gedge. Ives. Feasley. Peartree. Royall.
Northampton, Laxton Kings Cliffe. Hercock, Heircock. Harecock. Pointon. Baxter. Burfield.
And anyone else who knows me it would seem ;-)

I don't have a sub for,  but they have details of Thomas Rider, buried 15 January 1875 in Nottinghamshire (the free search isn't any more specific).

The death was announced in the Nottingham Journal on 14 and 16 January 1875.
